Honest Red
Lens: Pentax FA 24-90 mm Camera: K20D Photo Location: Lapu Lapu City ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: 1/125s Aperture: F8 
Posted By: shirey, 01-24-2019, 04:11 AM

I don't normally shoot flowers, but I came upon a garden by surprise. It was a windy day under an overcast sky. The light was good but the wind moved the flowers a lot, and I had to time my shots when they appeared to be steady. I relied on autofocus, automatic ISO and WB in AP mode with Image stabilization on. I had recently adjusted my custom image settings for extra sharp focus, and it gave me outstanding results with the flowers at a range of three to four feet. The flowers are real world, every day flowers, wearing no makeup in an outdoor setting. Most of the pollen has blown away, but that's what makes it honest. (Date: 23 January, 2019)

Yes it's a Red Hibiscus, they do come in a variety of colours but the Red is nice.

That camera body and lens combo is quite a potent duo. The reds came out perfect and the sharpness is awesome. Makes for a lovely viewing. Thnx for posting.

Thanks for the kind words on my gear. Yes, I finding both camera and lens have hidden talents I'm just now discovering. I appreciate them now more than ever, when I see the prices of the new equipment. I'm retired and have a limited income, so new equipment is out of the question. That's why I find more ways to get more out of my old stuff.

Thanks for telling me what they are. I'm terrible at such things, but think they are beautiful even if I don't know their names.
